Gophers Women's Hockey National Champions!

Congratulations are in order for the Gophers Women's hockey team bringing home the NCAA championship in hockey by defeating defending champion, and hated rival Wisconsin, 4-2 in Sunday's championship game played in Duluth, MN. The Badgers entered the game as the #1 team in women's hockey, but left without the championship hardware. In fact, Wisconsin finished the season 33-5-2 but the Gophers were actually 3-1-1 against the Badgers this season. It is always great to get the best of old Bucky the Badger, but even sweeter when it results in a national title!  Congratulations again!

Here is hoping the men's team can keep the momentum going as they commence their title run this Saturday at the Xcel Energy Center against Boston University. If the Gophers can get past Boston, they are most likely staring at a rematch with their bitter rival North Dakota in the West Regional finals. It is great to see hockey back on top in the State of Hockey!
